The Role of IFTI PROvision 3D Modeling in Modern Retail


In the rapidly evolving retail industry, technology isn’t just an auxiliary aid – it’s a vital player in the transformation of retail spaces. Among numerous technological progressions, 3D modeling has surfaced as a groundbreaking tool, revolutionizing the design, planning, and management of retail environments. At the heart of this transformation is our PROvision 3D Digital Imaging Solution, setting itself apart in modern retail through its innovative use of 3D technology.

Our PROvision Solution

Since our establishment in 1997, we at IFTI have been providing professional solutions for the construction industry and have broadened our services with the introduction of the PROvision 3D Imaging Solution. This tool morphs physical environments into precise digital twins with a single scan, offering a multitude of advantages for retail spaces across the U.S. and Canada. With PROvision, we can create 3D floor plans, walkthroughs, and CAD plans, all accessible through a secure portal. Our Pro Network of Technicians powers this technology, leveraging Matterport technology to deliver a professional and efficient service.

Impact on Retail Space Design and Planning

Our PROvision 3D modeling has seamlessly integrated into retail space design and planning, significantly streamlining these processes. The technology enables the creation of detailed floor plans with real-time measurements, allowing designers and stakeholders to visualize spaces in a three-dimensional context. This capability enhances the accuracy of measurements and provides a more immersive experience for those involved in the planning process. Through the use of PROvision, retailers can effectively launch, monitor, and update their retail spaces, ensuring they remain competitive and relevant in a fast-paced and ever-changing market.

Benefits of Enhanced Visualization and Communication

One of the most considerable benefits of our PROvision 3D modeling is the enhanced visualization it offers. Retailers can now view a ‘dollhouse’ perspective of their space, providing a comprehensive overview that traditional two-dimensional blueprints cannot match. This feature is vital for effective communication and collaboration among teams, as it offers a shared visual reference that can be accessed and understood by all project stakeholders. The ability to see an outside view of the space adds an extra layer of context, further assisting in the decision-making process.

Streamlining Operations and Improving Efficiency

Our application of 3D imaging technology has led to smoother operations in retail space management. PROvision provides a no-travel, cost-efficient alternative for creating virtual and interactive views of physical spaces, which is particularly beneficial in the context of remote project management and collaboration. This facet of the technology has proven to be a game-changer during times when travel and physical presence are restricted or not possible.

Enhanced Data Analysis and Decision Making

Data analysis is a cornerstone of strategic decision-making in retail, and our PROvision’s 3D imaging technology augments this process by offering detailed insights that were previously challenging to obtain. Retailers can use the data gathered from 3D scans to analyze space utilization, customer flow, and other critical factors that influence store performance. This level of analysis can lead to more informed decisions regarding store layouts, product placements, and overall customer experience.


Our PROvision 3D Modeling has become an essential tool in modern retail. It has significantly influenced how retail spaces are designed, planned, and managed, offering benefits such as precise measurements, enhanced visualization, streamlined operations, and improved decision-making. This adoption of our technology reflects the retail industry’s commitment to embracing innovation to stay competitive. As technology continues to evolve, our PROvision solution is set to play a crucial role in shaping the future of retail spaces.
